This particular function was used in B::C and B::Bytecode since 1995.

Since Linux/BSD/cygwin does not care about properly exported/not exported
symbols nobody cares about Windows breakage.

B::Generate also misses some exported functions from the very beginning on,
for which I wrote the export patches some time ago. They were also
warnocked resp. blocked by Nick. It's not my intent to bug p5p again
and again. Three times is enough for me.

Since these modules are used in production, the maintainer tried to
support it, but
CORE still refuses to support it, I can only think of keeping
maintaining private versions
of perl. Which I do for myself.
